‘This remarkable volume on Latin America's recent inclusionary turn brings together a set of terrifically talented and innovative scholars trained by David Collier and Ruth Berins Collier at UC Berkeley over the past several decades. The wide-ranging nature of the chapters is fitting because the breadth of this inclusionary turn, which included informal venders, evangelicals, and indigenous groups, is one of its most distinctive features relative to the earlier incorporation of labor unions. By showcasing the kind of insightful work the Colliers pioneered along with the kind of substantively important questions they trained their students to ask and answer, the volume serves as a superb tribute to their lasting impact on the field.'

‘Building upon the extraordinary legacy of Ruth Berins Collier and David Collier, this volume constitutes a tour de force through Latin America's inclusionary policies of the early 21st century. It is a must read for anyone interested in contemporary Latin America, particularly as we move into the political uncertainties of the 2020s.'

‘In the last 30 years, democratization in Latin America has opened opportunities for the mobilization of a broad array of popular sector groups seeking an end to the region's historic legacy of social and economic exclusion. This excellent volume provides a comprehensive analysis of this ‘inclusionary turn,' and of the political contradictions that have limited its social impact. With contributions from leading scholars in the field, it offers an essential overview of the changing politics of the 21st century.'
